The NBA officially unveiled its newly formed in-season tournament and the NBA Cup that teams will claim for winning it at summer league on Saturday afternoon.
The first year of the league's new tournament, a European soccer style cup, that will take place entirely before New Years. Games will be played on Tuesdays and Fridays. The top 2 teams in each group go to an elimination round, the semifinals and final will be played in Vegas.
They did their "draw" for group play, the Suns are in Group 4 with the Lakers, Grizzlies, Jazz and Blazers. Factoring in that Lillard will almost certainly be gone and that this whole thing takes place while Ja is suspended, us and the Lakers should be heavy favorites to advance beyond the group stage.
